Description: Soil moisture was measured around an isolated mature sugar pine tree (Pinus lambertiana Dougl.) in the mixed conifer forest type of the north central Sierra Nevada, California, from November 1965 to October 1966. From a sequence of measurements, horizontal and vertical soil moisture profiles were developed. Estimated soil moisture depletion from the 61-foot radius plot for the 1966 summer depletion season was 22.57 inches.
Keywords: soil moisture depletion, vegetative water use, evapotranspiration, forest influences, watershed management, Pinus lambertiana, California
